I put 2006 (OEMpart) left and right mirrors on my 96 and it has greatly improved the visability. I got them at a junkyard and the driver's side mirror jiggles. On a trip to the grocery store its no big deal. On a 4 hour drive on the highway it is extremely annoying. So, I looked into buying some new aftermarket ones. RockAuto has some TCY mirrors that look pretty good. Has anyone tried the TCY part and what was your opinion. I am concerned about them fading (grey vs black)mand also concerned about the mirrors jiggling.

My credo
Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
Why not pick up another mirror for a 96 at the j/y. Just se if it wiggles first.

Because I don't have time for that. I am working a full time job and taking care of my dad who had a stroke 4 months ago in another state 3 hours from home. It amounts to 12 hour days and driving home every weekend to take care of things at home. I have literally no free time - none. The junk part only wiggles on the road at over 60 mph (wouldn't have noticed it when trying to pick one. So ..... back to my original question if anyone can help me out with that. I need a decent part that I can order and have it delivered so I can install it during my lunch break.
